A rich tapestry of wit, grit, and humor…
Twenty-four-year old Phoebe Hawley is on a quest to find her family a home. On the road with two siblings, twelve-year-old Maydean and five-year-old Willie-Boy, Phoebe is out of money, out of gas and out of patience. The only things she owns in abundance are backbone and pride—neither of which she can trade for food or gas.
A collision with Gage Morgan puts Phoebe’s mission in even worse jeopardy—until Phoebe discovers Gage owns the perfect place for her clan. However, she soon discovers that Gage is the unlikeliest man in the universe to offer a helping hand.
Phoebe wields all the country smarts she owns to worm her way into Gage’s heart, but nothing works. With time running against her family, she plies one last inducement—her scarce feminine wiles.
Such a good story with a refreshing plot and
fun, lively, interesting characters. I started this book thinking it was set around 40s, 50s due to the characters circumstances and the imagery and language used. However, as the story progressed I noticed there was mention of modern technology such as a computer and the female characters clothes where more modern. I stuck with thinking the book was set later as that was the imagery I had in my head.
Loved the chemistry between the couple, would of loved more insight into Gage through the use of his pov. Gave it four stars as I felt it was a little rushed towards the end, although really enjoyed reading. Thank you.
A must read
I absolutely loved this story. I found the descriptive text and plot excellent. I enjoyed reading the American Southern way of talking and found I could imagine all scenes. I thoroughly recommend this book.
A really great feel good story with a superbly spirited warm hearted heroine at its centre.
